On Friday, Feb. 9, 2018, Sam, age 80, loving husband, father and grandfather, passed away peacefully at home. He will be forever remembered by his wife of 52 years, Angela, his daughter, Victoria Miller and husband Greg, of Washington; daughter, Alexandra Baj and husband Doug of Arlington, Virginia; son, Eric Price, of Redmond, Washington; grandchildren, Kate, Patrick, Amelia, Tessa, Jonathan, Cole, Allyson and Chris; and his brother, Robert Barge Price, of Conyngham, Pennsylvania.
Sam was born in Philadelphia and lived in Conyngham, Pennsylvania, where the Price family had a successful dairy business for many years. He thoroughly enjoyed life and his many hobbies, including international travel, sailing, astronomy and photography. He graduated from MMI Preparatory School and attended Penn State University. Sam photographed prominent jazz musicians from the 1950s while at Penn State as a member of the Jazz Club. He was an avid runner and completed more than 10 marathons, including Boston and the Marine Corps. As a young man, Sam raced his yellow Porsche and won many trophies for hill climbs and racing on ice. Sam and his wife retired to Washington in 1998. He was a proud member of the Down East Seniors and the Washington Yacht Club.
Anyone who knew Sam knew he was a jokester. He especially loved amusing his grandchildren with stories about the swamp women, crazy chicken and the old goat.
The family is most appreciative of the loving care provided by Amedisys Hospice and most especially Danielle and Rebecca.
A private family memorial will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers memorials may be sent to the charity of your choice.
